Vacation at the Lake. ☀

Jude

Kevin’s family and I went on a fabulous vacation to Deep Creek Lake last week.  7 days of relaxation – some days there was rain, some days there was sunshine.  If you follow me on Instagram, you got a taste of our wonderful vacation! I definitely uploaded a new photo every 5 minutes.

It was Kevin’s 27th birthday while we were there. (Yep, I’m a year older than him. But I look younger, right?!) We ate frozen peanut butter and mint chocolate chip pies, drank sangria, played Taboo, and shot pool.  Hikes to waterfalls, long dog walks, antique store shopping, and veggies on the grill. There was lots of beer, food, laughter, and more beer.

I went on lakeside runs with my future sister-in-law (and bridesmaid!) Kerry, we ate s’mores by the campfire, went to the beach with Kevin’s niece, and took plenty of pictures to capture it all. And ate more s’mores after that.

We’ve been there a few times before.

Swallow Falls is where Kevin proposed 7 months ago!

PS: that’s the exact spot where Kevin got on one knee last January!

And s’mores.

It was National S’mores Day, after all.

And Skinny Frozen Mint Chocolate Chip Pie, too!

There were 12 of us and we were at a higher elevation, so I just figured it would be easier to make no-bake treats for Kevin’s birthday dessert.

M&Ms for breakfast. Why not?
